Nice HB. Could it be possible to implement a "delete TXT" function ? Nothing more as it's plays its role :) OuahOuah 06:51, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

You should get SD Explorer that will let you delete unwanted txt files.--Linus 01:08, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Music crash

When developing my hively replayer for Wii, I found that using an LWP thread to do the mixing (like the modplayer in libogc) caused all kinds of GX bugs and crashes. When I ditched all the threading, and had an audio mix routine called once per frame in the mainloop, all the bugs went away. If the ogg player is using threads, that could be the cause of your crashes. -- Xeron 08:41, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeah I used the threaded ogg player example from sndlib and updated it to work with asndlib in libogc 1.7.0.--Linus 01:10, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Code Downloader

Hello WiiCM works fine for me, but the Code Downloader dosent.I load it via the HBC then open it. Pick my region, PAL then for a breif second it says downloading but then i get a Code Dump? Why Is This? Help! -- Wii_Manic 17th February 5:17pm

PAL-EU works fine for me. If you can post the code dump I could be more specific. I need the line the looks like 80006df8 --> 8000446c --> 8001a4a4 right above the words code dump. My best guess is that you dont have the directory /txtcodes/ on the root of your SD card.--Linus 01:13, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

8003f77c--> 8003f750--> 800043a4--> 80065cd4--> 80065c70 : Here we go. Hope this helps fix it. I have checked and i do have a txtcodes folder in my root of my SD card.--Wii_Manic 07:15pm 18 February 2009

The trace reports the error is from lwp_threads.c.Are you using wifi or the wired network adapter? Can you try using a diffrent SD card? are you using SDHC?--Linus 23:27, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi, I also am getting a code dump error. I know that I have a folder named txtcodes but i am still getting it. would deleting the temp.txt do anything? my code dump is 80048254-->80048240-->800043a4-->80065cd4-->80065c70--Kahlua18 18:15, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi, I realized that some txt files would download fine, but others (Zelda TP, Metroid Prime 3) would result in a code dump--Kahlua18 18:38, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi again, I was wondering if you were thinking about making a specific wiibrew page for code downloader. That way it would have it own download instead of being put into the source link. Also it could help organize the discussion pages. If you want any help with it or I could do it if you gave me permission to.--Kahlua18 18:19, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

If you wanted to create a wiki page I would be appreciate that. Ive just been to lazy. Thanks for your error report. I have been able to replicate the same code dump when trying to download zelda and metroid. The trace reports the same lwp_threads. My thought is that has to do with the free type grrlib. The wii networking code is not thread safe. I will write a new version that just uses terminal to display the information and see if I get the a better result.--Linus 23:13, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for all the bug reports. It wasnt the graphics the problem was colins in the file name. I removed these and will release a new version tommorrow.--Linus 06:05, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Hey Linus, I created a wiki page for Code Downloader, you can find it here Code Downloader. I didn't include download link because you took the link on the wiicm page down and I'm guessing you did that because of the crashes. Feel free to tell me if there is any problems with the page.--Kahlua18 19:00, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Awesome work on the wiki page. Ive uploaded version 1.1 and I think all files work now, but please let me know if you have any more problems. I also moved your suggestions to the the discusion page for code downloader. I want to add alphabetical listing but need to write a new file parser. Also I will probally keep the single file system to save bandwidth on the server Im scraping.--Linus 23:57, 20 February 2009 (UTC)


When I load a txt file from "txtcodes" folder in Wicm it brings up the codes and everything but when I try to turn off a code the screen just goes black. Why? -- Gamewizard71 02:31, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

are you using 1.1? that is what happend before I increased the max codes to 500. Also try not to edit the txt file.--Linus 02:50, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

I am using version PNCalpha1. -- Gamewizard71 03:01, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

You need to upgrade to 1.1 Download here.--Linus 17:49, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Okay, I upgraded it to 1.1 and now I can turn the codes off and on, but when I try to create a .GCT file it just does a code dump. Why? -- Gamewizard71 00:07, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Do you have the /CODES/ directory on the root of your SD card? Did you download the txt file with Code Downloader? If you cant use code downloader just do save as from the txt file on the wiird database and try not to edit the file.--Linus 07:06, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

I haves codes in the root of my directory and I am using code downloader 1.0 and using wiicm 1.1 to create Zelda .GCT file. -- Gamewizard71 07:15, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Nevermind, Thanks for your help but I got it working by upgrading Code Downloader and by changing codes and txtcodes to CODES and TXTCODES and by downloading zelda cheat file twice from Code Downloader because the first download was just a blank txt file named Zelda - 1. -- Gamewizard71 07:42, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

I've been downloading text files from Wiird and putting them on my SD card since my Wii isn't connected to the Internet so I can't use Code Downloader. When I open the text files with Wiicm on my Wii, it doesn't show any codes. And when I press the home button, it freezes and I have to turn off my Wii. How can I fix it? TharosTheDragon 23:06, 25 August 2012 (CEST)

Add modifier/ change xxxx values?

Can you changes values (eg xxxxxxx) for like different items in Wiicm. You can do it in cheat code manager but i find wiicm has a better gui.--pebls123 23:23, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
